This is what happens when you blow soap bubbles at 9-degrees below Celsius

Upon hearing the weather forecast about the unexpected cold drop from -9°C to -12°C this month, Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly took advantage of the chilly news in a brilliant way.

With her 7-year-old son, Kelly combined dish soap, karo syrup, and water and went out to blow bubbles and take pictures.

“We noted how they would freeze completely before the sun rose but that once the sun was in view they would defrost along the tops or cease freezing altogether,” Kelly said in a local news interview. “We also noted how they would begin to deflate and implode in on themselves making them look like alien shapes or in some cases shatter completely leaving them to look like a cracked egg.”
